Mission Codename Sy of relief
We love the value-minded wines of Doce Robles Winery and today’s is especially thrilling.
Today we’re featuring the Doce Robles 2012 Paso Robles Estate Reserve SY-RIFIC-CAB red blend, which is their flagship blend (of 60% Syrah, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon). This wine is smooth (thanks to extended aging) and delicious.
On the nose, this wine is lively, bright and full of fruit! Fresh blueberry, blackberry and raspberry lead the way. These are followed by jammy strawberry, sweet spice, red licorice and a hint of beautiful Indian incense.
On the palate, this wine hugs the sweet spot between sweet and tart, savory and juicy, with flavors of young strawberry, blackberry reduction, cherry bark, red licorice, red apple jolly rancher, sweet spice and a hint of black pepper.
The small-production Doce Robles Winery is the very first winery to have appeared on the now winery-heavy Highway 46. Doce Robles’ neighbors include the likes of Peachy Canyon, Sextant and Castoro Cellars… to name just a few.
Doce Robles planted their vineyards in 1996 to Barbera, Zinfandel, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Primitivo, Petite Sirah and Malbec were also planted in 2010 and 2012.
Very highly recommended… especially at today’s steal of a deal pricing.
